Syria Reactor Story a Diversion, But From What?

This story seems to me fishy. Syria is a poor state. Where would it have gotten the money for a reactor? Why exactly are there doubts that North Korea was involved? How much of the intelligence is from US sources and how much from Israeli? The latter are highly politicized. The head of Mossad in 2002 expressed confidence that Saddam was close to getting nukes.

Cole is always an authoritative voice on the Middle East. Here he asks the question I did when I heard this story yesterday, why is this story being released now? The supposed reactor was bombed by Israel years ago. Why release "intelligence" speculation about it now? Unlike me, Cole has the knowledge and contacts to make some educated guesses. And he makes some good ones. If you're tired of being manipulated by your government, it's a must read.

Good title....brings the White House bs in sight and also the MSM rubber stamp! As far as I know, invading the air space of a sovereign nation without permission is a crime, blowing up a building in an other country is an act of war and is a crime.....where is the out cry of a nation proud of it's 'rule of law'

This appears to be a good story. I can not be certain because.

These guys would not be convinced if they were personally taken to Syria and shown everything and provided with blueprints of the proposed bombs. They would think it to be a CIA operation with actors.
